Chinese Media Hail Japan's Coronavirus Relief, with Some Political Motives

Chinese Media Hail Japan's Coronavirus Relief, with Some Political Motives

   Beijing, Feb. 14 (Jiji Press)--Japan's support for China's fight against the novel coronavirus has been praised by the local media, reflecting the current pro-Tokyo stance of Chinese President Xi Jinping's leadership.
   The state-run Xinhua news agency reported Tuesday that boxes containing relief supplies from Japan have a line of ancient Chinese-style poetry saying, "While we are in different places, we are under the same sky."
   The line, believed to have been sent in the eighth century by a Japanese prince to invite a Chinese monk to Japan, touched the hearts of many people, the report said. Xinhua has repeatedly reported the passage this month.
   On Wednesday, the People's Daily, the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party, reported that various sectors in Japan are encouraging China in a variety of ways, with a photo of banners in the Dotonbori downtown district in Osaka that read "Hang in there, Wuhan!" in Japanese and Chinese.
   The Global Times, an affiliate of the People's Daily, also carried the same photo on its front page.
